6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom

6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

Get 6 Real World Examples of a Flipped Classroom from Subject Experts.

 

The Flipped Classroom model is changing the ways students learn and teachers teach. When you flip your classroom, you offer your students rich, engaging material to consider at home, and you use class time to help them interact with the ideas. Lecturing during class time is minimized and students have a teacher nearby when they are doing work and most likely to need guidance.

Marilyn Korhonen's curator insight, May 31, 2013 11:11 AM
The key to "flipped" is to rethink who has control of content and learning. These are some great tactics to help move instruction toward more student-led learning.
Kimberly A. Hurd's curator insight, May 31, 2013 5:52 PM

Great insight. 

Upfront40's curator insight, June 3, 2013 7:35 AM

Flipping the classroom is an ideal way to assist students who want to get ahead and be challenged while at home.

Kirsten Wilson's curator insight, February 18, 10:43 AM

As we consider different types of platforms of writing and communicating, infographics are a form that should consistently be modeled and created by students. If we are preparing our students with the ability for future success infographics will be one of the main ways information will be shared and conveyed.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

gosto da premissa que tecnologia não endereça/resolve necessidades emocionais, básicas na pirâmide aqui ilustrada.


A hierarquia tecnológica de segurança, sociabilização, cognição, estética, etc é um excelente passo a passo para utilização da tecnologia como ferramenta de aprendizagem.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 2, 7:19 PM

This is a project which is ongoing. Maslow, like others i.e. Ellul, had reservations about computers, but his work is important in their uses.

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it
While acknowledging that the whole concept of self-determination – or ‘Google
learning’ as it has been called, pejoratively, in certain circles – is fraught with the potential for missing the point, being distracted into rabbit warrens or just getting bad information, we would like to emphasise that this is only a potential.

 

===> Any learning theory is only as good as the way in which it is applied and worked through, and we have seen it produce highly successful results where correctly applied, in the right circumstances. <===

 

Watch this space for chapter and verse, as we will soon be publishing case studies of several recent programmes that feature high levels of learner self-direction.

Learners are changing, learning is changing – and heutagogy can give important clues about rebalancing the burden of responsibilities and permissions in an always-on, networked, instructorless, post-course world.

eLearning - Are We Missing The Point?

eLearning - Are We Missing The Point? | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

"I want to start this off by asking one simple question…does eLearning really work? Unfortunately though there is no simple way to answer that question.

 

There are many arguments both for and against eLearning, but the stark reality is, that if you are pushed for an answer, when you look at the facts, the answer is a resounding “NO”…but it so easily could be a “Yes.”

"Despite the fact that technology use is part of daily life, on balance, schools’ use of technology remains far from ubiquitous. There is no question that some teachers, principals, and district leaders have made considerable progress in using technology to transform learning. And there are strong examples of school districts that are leading digital change system-wide. However, there exists a major challenge: Few school systems have found a way to create a sustainable, digitally-enabled ecosystem."

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.
